Stealth wealth

Occupy Wall Street dominated the headlines last year, and now the Courage Campaign is trying to drum up support for a November ballot measure to increase taxes on wealthy Californians, using Kim Kardashian as their example of millionaires who could pay more. Will the growing class division and jobs debate usher in an era of stealth wealth style? Only time will tell. But for now, Kim, you might want to leave that Birkin bag at home. Pictured: an Hermès Diamond Birkin handbag that sold for $203,525 in an auction that ended Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2011, in Dallas.
